Imagining A Future City Filled With Driverless Cars And Without Any Parking Spaces

Imagining A Future City Filled With Driverless Cars And Without Any Parking Spaces | Useful technology around LENR Cold Fusion | Scoop.it

As self-driving cars move from fantasy to reality, what kind of effect will they have on cities?

A research and urban prototyping project called Shuffle City investigates, and in the process, becomes a manifesto for a new kind of modern city--one that depends less on traditional public transportation like buses or light rail and more on creating a fleet of continuously moving automated vehicles to serve urban mobility needs.

Shuffle City looks at the new possibilities that could arise from cities transitioning to cars without drivers. If cars were put into some constant flow as a public good, and if people didn’t all have their own vehicles, there would be no need for the concrete wastelands and lifeless towers that serve as a parking infrastructure in the urban landscapes of car-centric cities like Phoenix and Los Angeles (Under the current ownership model, the average car spends 21 hours per day parked.)

The share of city space ruled by parking lots will shrink, making way for more green space, environmental buffers, workspace, housing, retail, and denser planning for more walkable cities...

Alain Coetmeur's insight:

Looks like the future of Jed Rothwell in "Cold fusion and the future" booklet.

Just add a LENR reactor as powersource, and less troubles with fuel.

"Parfois ubuesque tellement les dispositifs sont disséminés." Mais faut-il donner peu à beaucoup ou beaucoup à peu ? Eternel débat :-)

En tout cas, il semble que l'accompagnement fait gagner beaucoup de temps, d'argent et d'énergie !

New scientific report on the E-Cat shows excess heat and nuclear process

New scientific report on the E-Cat shows excess heat and nuclear process | Useful technology around LENR Cold Fusion | Scoop.it

“In summary, the performance of the E-Cat reactor is remarkable. We have a device giving heat energy compatible with nuclear transformations, but it operates at low energy and gives neither nuclear radioactive waste nor emits radiation. From basic general knowledge in nuclear physics this should not be possible. Nevertheless we have to relate to the fact that the experimental results from our test show heat production beyond chemical burning, and that the E-Cat fuel undergoes nuclear transformations. It is certainly most unsatisfying that these results so far have no convincing theoretical explanation, but the experimental results cannot be dismissed or ignored just because of lack of theoretical understanding.”

 
Alain Coetmeur's insight:

Not the 6 month expected but no doubt either.

The blocking by Arxiv is fascinating !

 

you can publish anything crazy on Arxiv, but not an experimental report... they are ridicule!

Competing Against Non-Consumption: A Conversation with Clay Christensen

Disruptive Innovations Infiltrate Existing Markets in Surprising Ways 

 

According to Clay, true disruption occurs when companies compete against non-consumption. “A new-market disruption is an innovation that enables a larger population of people, who previously lacked the money or skill, now to begin buying and using a product and doing the job for themselves,” explains Clay. If you’re an upstart chasing after the non-consumer, the great news is that your audience is non-discriminating. They want something easy to use and they want it cheap. They’re not expecting that same level of quality and performance. “Because,” says Clay, “something is so much better than nothing.”

La source du dilemme de l’innovateur ou la tragédie du modèle d’affaire: 6 - Le bourrage

La source du dilemme de l’innovateur ou la tragédie du modèle d’affaire: 6 - Le bourrage | Useful technology around LENR Cold Fusion | Scoop.it

Contrairement à ce qu’on pense souvent, les entreprises confrontées à une rupture de leur environnement échouent rarement parce qu’elles ont ignoré cette dernière. Elles échouent parce qu’elles ne sont pas capables d’y répondre et d’en tirer parti. Une erreur typique consiste à adopter l’innovation de rupture et à l’utiliser pour renforcer son modèle d’affaire existant plutôt d’en créer un nouveau, un phénomène qualifié de bourrage (cramming) organisationnel.
